Re: "Wish I had known the record" club
I think there are a lot of 15lb to 20lb Silvers caught in Alaska. There are just not a lot of them using a class tippet or even fly gear. Most wouldn't even think about a record, it would just be another big fish. The Alaska Coho record is 26lbs caught in Icy Straights. That means it was more than likely caught trolling.
So Ard may have more than just a fly rod record.
